Theology and Covered Dishes
We need to talk about what we think and what we believe (all of us some of the time and some of us a lot of the time) AND we need to bring meals to people who are sick or have new babies or are otherwise overwhelmed by life and to know people who will do this for us.
Both of these are important parts of our spiritual development. Both the giving and the receiving. The speaking up and the listening to others.
I think that when people are looking for a new religious community or choosing whether to join a new community, they will decide based on some balance of these two elements.
As a meeting, do we make both kinds of opportunities available to people?
As individuals, do we make the time and have the courage to participate openly and honestly
